U.S. stocks fell broadly Thursday after a weak manufacturing report from China added to growing signs that the world's second-largest economy is slowing. The selling spared few companies, even those reporting solid earnings. In the Standard and Poor's 500 index, nine of 10 companies dropped. On Thursday: The Dow Jones industrial average fell 175.99 points, or 1.1 percent, to 16,197.35. The S&P 500 fell 16.40 points, or 0.9 percent, to 1,828.46. The Nasdaq composite fell 24.13 points, or 0.6 percent, to 4,218.87. For the week: The Dow is down 261.21 points, or 1.6 percent. The S&P 500 is down 10.24 points, or 0.6 percent. The Nasdaq is up 21.29 points, or 0.5 percent. For the year: The Dow is down 379.31 points, or 2.3 percent. The S&P 500 is down 19.90 points, or 1.1 percent. The Nasdaq is up 42.28 points, or 1 percent.
